Book Description

29 May 2008

Packing up a picnic hamper, throwing a rug in the car boot and savouring an outdoor feast is a time-honoured tradition that never fails to excite and delight. For adults the word picnic evokes warm childhood memories and the enjoyment of simple pleasures, and for children its suggestion of fun and treats brightens up the dullest of days.

In this beautifully illustrated book, passionate picnicker Mark Price celebrates, and offers inspiration for, this great British institution - in all its guises. He provides seasonal recipes for all manner of drinks and picnic fare - from quick and easy sandwiches and soups, to more elaborate pies and cakes - whatever the time of year, whatever the weather and however much time you have to prepare. He also offers:

• tips on how best to transport certain foods

• what equipment you'll need when you arrive

• a comprehensive guide to 20 top British picnic sites, including a map of the site, how to find the perfect picnic spot and a list of local producers for a 'cheat's' picnic

5.0 out of 5 stars fabulous outdoor food 20 April 2009
By isolde
This book is an absolute gem. It fills you with optimism just picturing the picnics you're going to have this summer. And the recipes taste just as good indoors!
I love the cranberry, sage and honey sausage do all of the men in my family, who eat handfuls of them at any given opportunity.

My wife and I have had this book for a couple of months now and can thoroughly recommend it. Not only is it packed full of tasty recipes but also amusing anecdotes.

A must for a garden party with friends or summer picnic with the family.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great little cook book 22 July 2009
Already tried two of these recipes. Plan on trying lots more. Even though this is a book for picnics, the recipes easily translate to everyday summer food. The sauce for the sausage and roast onion baguettes is lovely and the Prosciutto, porcini and olive Schiacciata is very nice and would be very easy to transport for days out.

The section at the back of the book has a nice little guide to some picnic sites to try around the country. Even got some ideas for my family locally.

If you like going for picnics and could do with more ideas then the usual soggy sandwich, this is a great start.
